It's time to lose the weight
It's time to eat better for better health
It's time to stop making excuses
It's time to take charge of my health
It's time to make the choices that will achieve my goals
It's time to start planning the next 20 years rather than ruing the past
It's just time......And today's the day

Fitness Minutes: 14,563

My Goals:
My main goal is to lose weight. Both of my parents are/were very overweight. My mom passed away from cancer after a lifetime of unhealthy eating. My dad has diabetes which is having a lot of negative effects on his life now. I'd like to try to get down to a manageable weight to try to avoid as much as possible, weight related health issues as I get older. It's working; I'm not even half way to my goal and I've been taken off my blood pressure medicine as of November, 2011! Yeah!


My Program:
1000-1200 calories on non-exercise days. Up to 1300 calories on exercise days. Following SP as far as 50% carbs, 30% healthy fats, 20% protein. I do Zumba 3 days a week for exercise and I love it! Any exercise for me has to be fun or I won't do it. It's all that simple for me, even though it's that hard!



Personal Information:


Other Information:
I am 46 and have an adorable 6 y/o springer spaniel. I love to garden/landscape at my house, and I am working on incorporating more food plants into the landscape-it's more about the process, though, than the result. Really goes with my philosophy of the fun and wonder of the journey than the destination! Love my Zumba classes and the friends I go with. I also am a fair weather walker-when the weather is good, I take my dog for long walks and we have such a good time together!

    but then I found this:

    "Rebellion against your handicaps gets you nowhere. Self-pity gets you nowhere. One must have the adventurous daring to accept oneself as a bundle of possibilities and undertake the most interesting game in the world, making the most of one's best."
    ~ Harry Emerson Fosdick

    Perhaps a bit too long for a tattoo, but one worth remembering!!

    Top 10 Signs You Are Too Old to Be Trick or Treating:

    10. You get winded from knocking on the door.
    9. You have to have a kid chew the candy for you.
    8. You ask for high fiber candy only.
    7. When someone drops a candy bar in your bag, you lose your balance and fall over.
    6. People say, "Great Keith Richard's mask!" and you're not wearing a mask.
    5. When the door opens you yell, "Trick or ..." and can't remember the rest.
    4. By the end of the night, you have a bag full of restraining orders.
    3. You have to carefully choose a costume that won't dislodge your hairpiece.
    2. You're the only Power Ranger in the neighborhood with a walker.
    1. You avoid going to houses where your ex-wives/ex-husbands live.

    I was going to do a Dance Party today, but I'm not sure you all would want me to.

    I've been listening to Dave Barry's Book of Bad Songs.

    The songs I have going through my head are ones that will take **forever** to leave you.

    This seemed like a good one for a blustry Monday morning.
